my pick for St. Louis is SUH! Build your Defense!

Taco John
02-01-2010, 08:48 AM
Interesting. I'm thinking they need a quarterback of the future and should take either Bradford of Clausen.

I think the pick is Suh.

Wouldn't be suprised to see St Louis aquire Vick, or draft a QB in the 2nd round.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 08:53 AM
So far we have two for Suh, three for defense, and one solo QB.

Taco John

Detroit needs help all over. Especially on both sides of the line. I'd say either DT, McCoy, or OT Okung. That's pretty high for Okung though.

I agree with what you are saying... Detroit has to go BPA here, and that's McCoy

That's four for McCoy. I'd say we should have at least 5 or 8 votes for a player before making it official though.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 09:36 AM
Berry?

A safety in the top 3... That's a tough one for me to swallow.

Is Josh Freeman their answer? I have a hard time believing they'd pick a safety over a QB here. My vote is either Bradford, Claussen, or a trade down - which I don't think we should get too involved in trades here because of how much they complicate things.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 09:41 AM
I guess it's worth asking the question: If Tampa Bay doesn't want a quarterback here - then who does?

And I'm not convinced that Tampa Bay doesn't want a QB here considering the position they're in.

I agree that a safety that high is pretty odd, but I think they're pretty happy with Freeman, and I don't know who else they would think of taking that high. If the first 2 picks are Suh and McCoy, they'd probably want to trade down.

Br0nc0Buster

Berry for me

I dont like the idea of drafting a safety that high, but he is the best player on the board and they arent gonna take a qb since they just drafted Freeman

No chance they take a QB here - not after just taking Freeman

Who is their target?

Taco John
02-01-2010, 09:52 AM
who is their target?

a qb.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 09:54 AM
The way I see it Campbell is a goner in DC. And Pete Carroll is going to want to get a QB to start his tenure. If I'm Tampa Bay, I'd be looking to trade down one spot if I could, but can't force that unless I draw Seattle (and probably one other team) into the conversation.

That's complicated though.

DrFate
02-01-2010, 09:54 AM
I kind of agree with the sentiment Taco - my issue with it is that there isn't a 'clear' set of quality signal callers. Bradford hasn't proven he's durable (or even healthy) and the feelings for Clausen are mixed. I can see the QBs falling out of the top 10 completely...

If the Seahawks think that one of those is THE guy, I can see a move...

jhat01
02-01-2010, 09:55 AM
I wonder if Seattle would have any interest in trading up to this spot.

If they are looking at Bradford..they probably would want to jump the skins I would think.

DrFate
02-01-2010, 09:55 AM
My buddy is a life-long Skins fans (season tickets, the whole deal)

He is CONVINCED they take an OT at #4 and not a QB... (which might influence the need for the Seahags to trade)

Now he doesn't think that Campbell is the answer either - but with the lack of 'blue chip' QBs in this draft, and the OLine issues - he has been adamant about what the Skins do.

The Joker
02-01-2010, 10:00 AM
Good call on Seattle, if they really like a QB they'll have to be worried about Shanahan taking him. I could also see the Bucs moving up to #1 if the Rams want a QB and the Bucs really prefer one of the DT's over the other.

With no trades though, I have to go with Berry.

PRBronco
02-01-2010, 10:04 AM
My vote's for Berry. A rare talent at an important position in today's NFL.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 10:18 AM
3. Tampa Bay Buccaneers - Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

The Washington Shanahan's are on the clock

Taco John

By the way, my final thought was Berry, giving him 5 votes for that pick.

Russel Okung OT, Oklahoma

I think this is a strong possibility too. I'm torn between Clausen and Okung.

I don't think Shanahan wants to waste a year not having a QBOTF learning his system though. I think Clausen is it (Bradford has a bum shoulder).

Rohirrim
02-01-2010, 10:24 AM
Shanahan can use his 2nd round pick on a QB.

Taco John
02-01-2010, 10:24 AM
Of course, Shanahan might have a late round young QB he could groom. He's not been one who has been enthusiastic about drafting QBs high due to their price tag.

PRBronco
02-01-2010, 10:25 AM
Okung, they have the worst offensive line ever. Other than the Bills. And the Chiefs.

DrFate
02-01-2010, 10:25 AM
I vote Okung

(see above for rationale)

4. Washington Redskins - Russell Okung, OT, Oklahoma State

The Kansas City Chiefs are on the clock

meangene
02-01-2010, 10:27 AM
I think they take Bradford. They have a connection to the surgeon who performed his surgery and I think he will give him a clean bill of health. Shanahan can build his o-line with later picks who fit the ZBS that other teams may pass on.

Rolando McClain to Chiefs - highest needs imo are OL, S and LB. With Okung off the board I go the LB.

I think the Chiefs take Rolando McClain.

Damn, this draft moves fast! Much as I hate to see him go I think the Chiefs take McClain.

PRBronco
02-01-2010, 10:35 AM
Hmm, if the draft really played out this way I see the Chiefs trading back, while someone moves up to scoop up a QB. As it stands I vote for the receiver who got kicked off OSU whose name I always forget. Dez...Bryant?

I have to go with CJ Spiller for the Hawks. Carroll loves his running game. He has nothing to work with right now but old legs. He's going to make Spiller the foundation of a new philosophy for that team.

Taco John

I like the Spiller take. But Seattle needs a QB as part of that foundation too. Not to mention OL.

This pick here is going to eff up a ton of draft boards and is going to add a lot of intrigue to draft night.

02-01-2010, 10:52 AM
Bradford or Clausen

Rohirrim
02-01-2010, 10:56 AM
I think Pete is very confident in his abilities when it comes to QBs. He has always worked with a strong running foundation as the basis for good QB play. IMO, he will have faith in his ability to take a QB later (McCoy?) and coach him up. But without that running game, he will not feel secure.

02-01-2010, 11:02 AM

Since I won't be here for the Broncos pick, I'll throw in my choice now:

DAN WILLIAMS, NT, Tennesee – 6’3”, 305

Dan is a big, strong Defensive Tackle with excellent foot speed and quickness for a player of his size. He has the strength to push the pocket when rushing the QB and the athletic talent to engage and shed his blocker and make a tackle when defending in the running game. Dan has the quickness to split a double team and get into the back field and disrupt the blocking assignments of any pulling offensive line. He can play in a one gap system or a two gap system. He can also play nose tackle in a 3-4 defense. Dan has some solid pass rushing moves and will get sacks from the defensive position. He has the talent to play DT in any style of defense. Dan reminds me a lot of Vince Wilfork (DT New England Patriots). (Huddle Report)

Jacksonville was woeful at putting points on the scoreboard last year. I think Dez Bryant is the pick here. They have a lot of needs, but an offensive playmaker who can stretch the field is pretty high on the list, I'd think.


Dez Bryant.

The Jaguars have been rumored to be highly interested in Derrick Morgan and Brandon Graham. They need to generate a pass rush. Their focus to date hasn't been a WO.

DERRICK MORGAN.

Their defense put little pressure on the QB this year.

Well, I posted this a little early. I thought I had to go mess around with some car stuff and when I got there, I discovered my son had already done it. Very cool. Anyway, I offer this suggestion for your consideration:

DAN WILLIAMS, NT, Tennesee – 6’3”, 305

Anybody who watched him in the Senior Bowl could see him doing a lot of outside grabbing. Plus, there are "level of competition" questions.

Plus, Dan is a very likable guy. He even sounds kind of like Elvis (as in Presley). :rofl:

What makes this choice difficult is that we know that a stronger LG would have given the Broncso a couple of those third and 1 plays that could have beaten the Colts, even with the current D. But, I am thinking that the DE would just be a killer on the rush with Doom, and that would pleasure the h3ll out of me. Maybe the Broncos get a LG a bit later - and there may be some good prospects early in the second round - but Williams is there only once. He could help make Baker/Fields/Thomas look better....

That's actually the only thing that is keeping me from choosing Iupati right now. We clearly need a left guard. And having Iupati and Clady over there would be epic.

But, alas, I seriously doubt that we'd take a guard that high, and we do have other needs. It's too bad we wasted a pick on Alphonso Smith that we could be using here. Dan Williams at 11 and Iupati at 14 would have been sweet.

Dan Williams.

If we trade Marshall, then Iupati becomes a real target with a mid-late first round pick.

I don't think McDaniels shares that draft philosophy. As I recall, there were only 30 players on his list from last year that he would even consider, and he pursued those players with singular focus. Or so the reports that came out suggested.

Also, with Knowshon being a high draft last year, that would probably eliminate Spiller as a selection. Bryant, on the other hand is still very much in play (or so I would think).

Also, with Knowshon being a high draft last year, that would probably eliminate Spiller as a selection. Bryant, on the other hand is still very much in play (or so I would think).

The Brandon Marshal situation is going to determine everything... If he is gone and dex bryant is sitting there you have to take him.

If he is still on the team Bryant is not even a consideration.

Right now if I had to bet i would say the odds slightly favor him not being here.

IMO, Golden Tate will be a more productive WR than Bryant. Williams could provide the Broncos with something it has not had for a very long time; a force that can destroy the middle. Another WR is not going to improve this team as much as an ass kicking NT would. Which player would do more to help the Broncos beat the Chargers, for example, Williams, or Bryant?

I am going to be really curious to see what Dez runs in the 40. If he puts up a really fast time I wouldn't be opposed to taking him. Otherwise I would prefer to get best front 7 player with our first pick, and address WR in the 2nd-3rd rounds.

Ehhh... I'll trust your judgement on Bryant vs. Tate, but the thought of entering next season with KO as QB and no Marshall just scares the hell out of me.

I agree that we need front 7 players, but with a draft this deep and an additional 2nd (I'm assuming that is what we get for marshal) we could easilyy load up in the 2nd round.

The Broncos have a whole lot of issues. To me, a Dez Bryant pick would be a luxury. That's the kind of pick a team makes when they are already near a solid playoff run - Go out and get that last piece, a TO type WR that can take it deep. The Broncos have fundamental line issues that they have to solve before they go looking at luxury receivers, IMHO. That's why I believe Tate would be a better receiver for the Broncos, if they went that direction. He can run everything in the route tree well and goes up after everything. Bryant lopes down the field and catches the long ball. I still say, if it unfolds like this, Williams would fit best for the Broncos, and bring the most value.

FWIW... here is a decent scouting report on Williams.

Dan Williams – Tennessee

Scout: David Syvertsen

Height/Weight: 6’3/327

Pro Potential: Jason Ferguson – Miami Dolphins

Position Traits

Pass Rush/Closing Ability/Moves and Counter Moves: Totaled just 6.5 sacks over his four year career, not much of a finisher in the pocket. However he is very disruptive on deep dropbacks, hard guy to keep at bay. Closes in on the ball carrier very well, moves well in space. Uses his hands well to get off blocks, limited repertoire of moves.

Pursuit/Lateral Movement/Agility: Perhaps the most surprising part of his game. Chases well sideline to sideline, makes a lot of tackles outside the box. Does not adjust well to the late cut block, can get heavy feet in the trenches.

Quickness/Explosion: The hustle off the snap is not always there, seems to tire easily. Can get in to the blocker’s face right away with his anticipation. Not necessarily quick in to the backfield but he has the powerful explosion that will show up on occasion.

Run Defend/Recognition: Constantly double teamed but still makes an impact on tackles. Gets in on a lot of hits. Covers a lot of ground from his nose tackle spot and gets moving in the right direction off the bat. Reads blocks and gets himself in position to make the tackle or alter the running lane.

Size/Length/Hand Size: Has the ideal lower half for a defensive tackle. Huge rear with thick legs gives him the power to hold ground against double teams and get a push against a single blocker. Carries his 320+ pounds comfortably. Has longer arms than a normal 6’3 player has and he knows how to use them to keep blockers at bay.

Strength/Ability to Shed Blocks: Can bench press almost 500 pounds, a very stout defender. Seems to be on another level strength wise from head to toe than his opponents. Difficult to keep blocked for long because of his active hands and sheer power. Looked like a man among boys on some weeks.

Tackling: Improved in this area since his earlier years. Had over sixty tackles from the nose tackle position, an impressive number. Does get juked in space because his feet get heavy in pursuit. When in position, he completely swallows the ball carrier with his arms and does not let them escape. Strong tackler.

Technique/Hand Use/Leverage: Plays low from his rear on up, hands are constantly attacking the blocker’s numbers. Strong hands prevent him from getting locked on to. Overall technique is picture perfect when he is not fatigued. Cuts corners and loses out on the leverage battle when he is on the field for more than six straight plays.

Versatility: Can play in any scheme on the inside. Has the girth and strength to be double teamed inside as a 3-4 nose tackle, but can also shoot the A gaps in the 4-3. His versatility will boost his grade as any team looking for interior defensive line help will have him high on their board.

Final Word: Williams has arguably given a bigger boost to his stock than any senior in the country this season. In a strong class of defensive tackles, Williams could break his way in to the first round because of his NFL-ready ability to stuff the run. The impact that Terrance Knighton has had on the Jaguars defensive line will only help Williams here. While his motor can be questioned, it is obvious he has put in a lot of time to molding his body in to ideal shape for a run stuffer. If he can be put in to a healthy rotation up front, his impact will be felt early and often.

He sounds like he was made to order for the Broncos. ;D

I think he very much goes with the BPA philosophy with the caveat that they fit the scheme and the team-oriented approach his is implementing. Look, I know we have a number of needs but this is a very deep draft and I expect us to have multiple picks as a result of some of our RFA's being signed and/or traded. It is a particularly deep draft on the DL and OL so those needs can be addressed with players selected where they are slotted. I would not discount Spiller - he gives us the explosive playmaker we need as a returner and a great compliment to Moreno. You need two top quality backs in this league to maintain a successful running game. Our OL really needs inside players whom you can typically pick up later in the draft. There is currently only one inside OL with a first round grade.

Alright. I counted them up. If you hadn't caught the vibe in the last three pages, Dan Williams got double the votes that any other player got.

With the 11th pick in the 2010 Orange Mane Consensus Mock draft for February, The Denver Broncos select:

11. Denver Broncos - Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee

A solid pick, and fills a definite need.


The Miami Dolphins are on the clock.

I agree with the consensus here that Bryant is probably the pick. But Parcells is a wild card. I could just as easily see him going after Price, Pierre-Paul, or Weatherspoon here.

I agree. I think Parcells would take Price. There will still be a bunch of solid WRs in the second round. Good DTs are much harder to find, and Bill knows it.

Taco John
02-02-2010, 08:46 AM
I agree Ro. I think Price is more likely a pick than Bryant, regardless of the fact that Miami needs help at WR. Bryant doesn't strike me as a "Parcell's guy."

The only 1st round WR in Parcell's long history.
